Solo travellers

Our sociable, smaller-sized ships are the ideal choice for those travelling on their own.

Whether you like to enjoy a little independence when you travel or prefer your own room when you're travelling with friends, you'll find a solo cruise with us is a great choice.

You can expect a warm welcome and sociable atmosphere, as well as some incredible experiences. We'll take care of all the little details so you can focus on having a fantastic solo holiday.

My very first solo cruise was with Saga and I have never looked back. I'm always very well looked after and nothing is too much trouble. I've done quite a few now and have made lots of friends.

Exclusive activities for solo guests

A special 'Singles Mingle' drinks party take place early in each cruise, which is a great opportunity to meet and socialise with your fellow solo cruisers. There is also an exclusive Singles Lunch where you can get to know them better.

On port days, when everyone is heading out to explore, we also arrange a special singles meet up. This your chance to link up with other solo guests for your shore excursion or to explore the destination together. If you've booked an excursion and find you know someone else who's going, simply tell us and we'll ensure you're on the same bus together.

Your own single cabin

We offer a far higher proportion of single cabins than most other ships. It means you'll have a wider choice of accommodation in many grades, even Single Suites.

Whichever grade you choose, it will be well-appointed with an en suite bathroom, a dressing table or writing desk, a wardrobe, flat-screen TV and DVD, safe, a mini-fridge and everything else you need. You can also enjoy your own personal cabin steward, 24-hour room service and a nightly turndown service – all at no extra charge.

Cabins aboard Spirit of Discovery

More than 100 cabins on our new ship are designed just for singles. That's more than a fifth of all cabins on board – a true industry first.

Cabins aboard Saga Sapphire

Our gem is famous for her generous, spacious cabins, and single accommodation is no different, offering plenty of choice.

Cabins aboard Saga Pearl II

The comfortable, nautical-themed cabins on our smallest ship also offer many options for single cruisers, in a variety of grades.

Look forward to a sociable cruise

Every day on board, a Daily Programme brings you a great choice of free lectures, activities, quizzes, dance classes and entertainment. Just come along to anything you fancy: our Cruise Directors will make sure you get together with like-minded people to join in the fun.

Exquisite cuisine is also a big part of the cruising experience and we want you to dine the way you prefer. All restaurants have an open seating arrangement, so you can choose to sit with other solo guests, reserve a table to share with new friends, or join one to dine with different people each night. Our helpful maître d' will arrange everything for you – just tell them what you prefer.

A reassuring way to reach the ship

Our included chauffeur service makes it easy to journey to and from the port, which is especially reassuring when you're travelling on your own. When the big day arrives, the chauffeur will meet you at home, load your luggage and whisk you off to Dover, Portsmouth or Southampton. Just sit back, relax and leave the rest to us.

As soon as you step on board, you'll feel at ease. The sailaway cocktail part is a great place to meet some of your fellow guests, and the free drinks are sure to put you in the holiday mood. Remember, our cruise are exclusively for those aged 50 or over, so you'll be in the company of like-minded people every step of the way.

Unbeatable value too

By including all the essentials in the price, we save you the time and trouble arranging things yourself. You won't have to worry about any hidden costs, or overlooking something important.

For example, our friendly Cruise Consultants can take care of the optional insurance and additional cancellation rights, or a reduction if not required. They also arrange your travel to the port or car parking, and any tourist visas that may be necessary – and it's all included at no extra charge.

Other things we include are all meals and entertainment, wine with lunch and dinner, on-board gratuities, free Wi-Fi, 24-hour room service and more. With so much included upfront, you'll be free to budget without worrying about the costs mounting up later.
